  • Enrichement and Picogreen concentrations?

    Hello,
    I am trying to do a ChIP for ChIP-Seq for a transcription factor (TF) that has no known binding site so far. I therefore can't check my enrichment by qPCR, and the only ways to QC my ChIP are western-blot and Picogreen qtification.
    My western looks ok, but my Picogreen assays show not difference of DNA concentration between the control and my TF sample. Is it normal or should I see a difference. Is it a bad sign for the future ChIP-Seq experiment (too much background)?
    I don't know what the fraction of my specifically enriched DNA should be: 1 or 50% of the amount of background DNA.
    Anyone can help?
    Thanks a lot!

    Our picogreen concentrations of our ChIP and our Normal Rabbit IgG control can have very similar concentrations after sample prep. In our experience, the only way to know if a specific antibody worked (even if checked on western and pcr) is to sequence it and look at the differences. At that point the bad sign is if the peaks are at the same place when mapped to the genome.

      Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
      by seqadmin


      The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

      Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
      by seqadmin




      The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...
